    Wonder if it was really a suicide or if her parents got to him before the police did, in either case justice was served.

      Wow?! Really?! He gets an underage girl pregnant, and then he kills her 9 months later… I doubt this guy had a good future.. I bet someone did us all a favor and took care of this fool.

    Mom & dad both gone. Grandparents left to start over with a 9 month old. Who gets to explain to him what happenend to both his parents. A sad case all around.

    Youthful immaturity, statutory rape (if my math is correct), bad parenting or role models, and a Cadillac Escalade. Sadly, taxpayers will have to “support” this poor infant since the parents won’t be around to raise this child. Maybe the grandparents (if they’re around) might be able to do what’s best for this orphaned infant.

    The grandparents were divorced, One other thing, The guy who hung himself’s own daddy comitted sucide two years ago. The girl’s father doesn’t speak English. Bet that baby will be fkd up when she is grown. And the boys will be tramitized for life

    The dad is in hell with the devil now
